Linda grew up on the Northcott farm and she learned a strong work ethic from her dad. She attended Tremaine school and St. Micheal’s Academy. She attained her psychiatric nursing degree in Brandon and then in 1984, she got her RN nursing degree. During her training Linda met Bob, a city police officer and fell in love. She worked full time in Brandon and then in Minnedosa at the Care Home after moving to the family farm in 1986. Mom loved to camp during the summer months in Clear Lake with family and friends.

Mom’s love of music first began by singing with her sisters, later with her daughter, as well as singing with the Hunterville, Rapid City and Minnedosa United Church choirs. She loved the banjo and her grandson continues to play on her dad’s banjo. Her hobbies and volunteerism included being a UCT member, gardening, quilting and traveling. Her love of traveling included spending the last few winters in Florida with her friend Claude.

Mom loved scrapbooking which included making many albums of her grandchildren and trips with girlfriends.

We will miss her smile and laugh, kindness and love.

Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • I'm sending my deepest sympathy to Linda's entire family and friends. My memories include the 4-H concerts, where the Northcott sisters sang such beautiful harmony. Also visiting at the Personal Care Home in Minnedosa, when my parents volunteered there, Linda was such an inspiration. She lived a very full life of serving with her compassion and caring. May her spirit live on in all of you as you move through this difficult time. She will be watching you from above. Doreen Delgaty - Posted by: Doreen Delgaty (Friend) on: Apr 08, 2023

  • To Lara and Trevor and their families We were so sorry to hear that your Mom has passed away, what a shock for us. Just before Christmas in the Shoppers Mall I (Sharon) met your Mom and we had a very good visit, updated each other on family etc. She was so looking forward to going south with her male campion and leave the winter behind. We hope this happened for her and she did have a wonderful southern experience. We were going to attend the funeral but the weather being as it is we are staying home. Really wanted to be there and support you all. Our prayers and memories of fun times in the past will have to work for now. Thinking of you at this very difficult time.
